Great White Way Becomes Great Walkway: Broadway Street Closing

Several blocks of Broadway (42nd-47th in Times Square; 33rd-35th in Herald Square) closed to vehicle traffic starting today. This is an experiment that turns the "Great White Way" into pedestrian malls in Mayor Michael Bloomberg's effort to reduce traffic congestion in midtown. The city plans to keep the street closing through the end of the year, and if the experiment works, they could become permanent.
